Nigerians reject bill to ban generator importation

Nigerians have spoken against a bill seeking to ban the importation of generators in the country.

The bill titled ‘Generating Set (Prohibition/Ban) Bill, 2020’ was first read before the Senate on Wednesday and prescribes a minimum of 10 years imprisonment for anyone selling generators.

Nigerians on Twitter believe the bill is ill-timed and that the concern should be fixing epileptic power supply in the country.
